Mickey Hartzog Signature Stick
The SF-1005 has an exclusive 12" backtaper, which effectively moves the center of gravity forward. This has two noticeable benefits, first it gives the stick a quicker rebound off the head, up to 25% faster in the upstroke! Second, it "beefs-up" the stick right where you need it most, in the rim shot zone. What does this mean to you? A faster rebounding stick with greater durability on the field!
The stick was
beta tested by the 2001 Pioneer D&B Corps with great results.
Mickey Hartzog is currently the caption head for the Pioneer
D&B Corps. Mickey has spent the last 10 years working as caption
head, arranger and instructor for several corps including: The Sky
Ryders, the Magic of Orlando, Nothern Aurora, Blue Devils B, and
Silver Fox Unveils Field
Our new Silver Fox Field Series Keyboard Mallets were a tremendous success throughout the 2002 drum corps season. The Pioneer D&B Corps were extremely impressed with the durability and high schools & colleges across the country have been gearing up with Field Series mallets for this year's marching season.
Designed exclusively for marching from the ground up, Field Series Keyboard Mallets utilize the most state-of-the-art wrapping and crowning system available.
An innovative "one-ply" micro-filament wrap allows for 500-700 wraps (as opposed to 100-200 wraps with traditional yarn and cord). A much tighter and more unified wrap results in maximum durability, even under the most extreme weather conditions. The micro-filament wrap further allows for more control of density and hardness. A weighted core provides superb balance and feel.
A permanent, mechanical epoxy crown provides the ultimate protection against unwrapping as the mallets can be crowned 360° around, as opposed to traditional stitch crowning which only touches the mallet in 5 or 6 places.
Field Series Keyboard Mallets are available in a Vibes Series and a Marimba Series:
I recently purchased two pairs of Silver Fox 730 Field Series keyboard mallets from the Grover booth at WGI in Milwaukee. After finally having a chance to play with them, I only have one question: Where can I get more? ...a satisfied WGI customer...
Our new 5B model has a beefier neck and oversize new barrel tip. Endorsee Craig Sala has worked with SIlver Fox to create a 5B on steroids!
We've already sold out the first production run, but plan to fire up the lathe and produce more as soon as our production schedule allows.....
